Star Trek on film has never really been in the "smart" category. (TMP was more pretentious than smart) Even in TV its been slightly above average at best, rather than in the "smarts" department.
The vast majority of Trek films weren't smart and the one's with TNG actors definately IMO were not.
Generations: the villian chases after blissful eternal life by entering the 'Nexus," a space ribbon. Enterprise and crew try to stop him. [not high minded to me]
First Contact: rinse-repeat the borg [no highmindness there]
Insurrection: planet with simple folks who have found the fountain of youth. [err nothing to see here]
Nemesis: well enough said.
